Ok, I am about 7+ months along and I have been avoiding soapmaking during this pregnancy, but I am runnning out of soap and need to make more. Dose anyone know if it is ok to make soap while pregnant? Or has anyone done it?

It should be okay - just take the normal precautions to protect your skin and eyes when working with the lye (gloves and goggles to be very careful, vinegar for just in case), and try not to breathe the fumes from the hot lye liquid, I usually do the lye-water mixing outside to keep the fumes from overwhelming me.

I think it would be ok but I would avoid EOs known to be bad for pregnancy like rosemary and such.
